Regular guest who comes back for more.
Setting, price, staff friendliness.
Being a regular stayer at the Waterfront, (probably around 5 or 6 times we have stayed there) you can not beat it for that tropical paradise experience at an affordable price. The room we always pick is the Deluxe Premium room which has a balcony and faces the interior with views of the pool and sea. With a one year old there is a kiddies pool and shaded sunbed near by. The beds are king size and easily sleeps two adults and a restless little one. The rooms are air conditioned but not too noisy so can be left on all night without disturbance. Breakfast buffet has a good variety but avoid peak business times of around 7-8 am. I recommend staying here although a little far away from the city center, but the taxis are cheap if you don't mind the traffic.

Nice beach and good food
food, beach and quiet
Nice quiet hotel, great seafood, and very nice pool and beach. But terrible internet connection an business center too expensive. But close to malls.

The best traditional hotel in Mindanao
Spacious and clean rooms, very friendly staff, value for money
More than what I expected. I will definitely come back whenever I need to travel to Davao. I will also recommend the hotel to my relatives and friends.

Expensive but Ordinary
the expansive garden is well kept
There is charm to staying in an old hotel but this one needs improvement. The doors are squeaky and wouldn't shut by itself except when pushed or pulled through the metal fittings that when rubbed against each other produce the most irritating sound of metal to metal contact. The hotel will also benefit from a better coordination with their service providers. The van that we arranged to pick us up to bring us to the airport did not show up so we had to take 2 cabs instead.

It could be better
What I like about the hotel the privacy, avcessibilty to the other islands & the relaxiing
Waterfront Insular is the only resort hotel in Davao. I like the layout & the relaxing ambience. The only hotel in Davao accessible to Samal Islands. It could be like Cebu's mini-Plantation bay but sadly it looks dated. It has a lot of potential. The rooms look old & needs a makeover..to compensate they provided a nice bed with fluffy pillows. I slept well. The only thing new & modern is the restrooms in the lobby.

Nice Hotel
Amenities, Service And Cleanlines
I had a stay and experience in the said hotel. The only thing is that its crowded when functions are held in the pool area.

Fantastic!
They have a big place, garden, unlike other hotels that typically you're in a building. A home away from home
My daughter enjoyed the pool in the evening. :) I had a great stay.

a nice, quiet place to stay

The place is very quiet and relaxing - ideal for those who want to have a break from the busy life in the city.
